My review is drafted, and the editor tells me it'll be the first thing he posts tomorrow, we've been down for maintenance for a bit, but this'll be the first thing posted back from break. Keep an eye on www.blackwindmetal.com tomorrow and hopefully it'll be quick. He'll have a lot to edit through though, the review itself is more than 1200 words. I dedicated a paragraph to each members songwriting contributions.

UPDATE: Just leaving NYC after listening to Nemesis in its entirety for the first time! 10 out of 10!!!!! This album is a Beast! Even with a lot of background noise and low volume audio, this album is going to leave fans breathless! Jens and Timo took pics, signed items and the promoters gave us singles for "Unbreakable"!!!!! First class people and thankful to their fans!
SHINE ON!

How'd you like the run of Fantasy/Out of the Fog/Castles in the Air?

To be honest they were all great but the audio and background noise made it too difficult to experience the full majesty of it. I will tell you that i loved key intro and chorus to Fantasy. Out of the fog had some heartstopping moments and Castles in the Air is beautiful! If the Story Is Over grabs you at that second chorus and doesnt let go!

Understand why it was a bit hard to comment on One Must Fall and Nemesis?

I would say definitely One Must Fall....Nemesis is a melodic classic of a song!

I just got word back from the promo company, I'm doing an interview with Kotipelto in an hour, and wanted to know if I could throw a few samples in the audio, they said that Edel/Ear has some promotion plan and doesn't want any clips getting out under any circumstances. I tried though.

After hearing the album last night, there is no doubt that Edel/Ear wants good promotion for this one. There is somthing truly special about this album!

Timo said the club played the album 3 times. Just talked with him for 20 minutes on the phone for an interview. There's some cool stuff, I'll try to get it transcripted and posted ASAP.

I left about midway through the second time- had a 2 hour plus drive back in the snow! So worth it!
